What if I was to tell you someone was behind the mirror you look in. The reflection that stares back at you. A slave working tirelessly year after year to show your image to you. A little girl. No older than ten. You would save her from her torment, wouldn't you?
It seems the right thing to do. But what if I told you she wasn't just any normal little girl, that her parent was something beyond evil; the devil himself. What would you do then?
I choose to help her. Madness? I have no doubt about that, but my sins have weighed me down for too long. I need redemption. She will be my redemption.
I hope I've made the right choice.
